The Dallas Medical Examiner confirmed that Sara Hudson, the 22-year-old woman found in her burning SUV off Lower Greenville Avenue on Monday died from a gunshot wound to the head.
Glen Richter, 49, was booked into the Dallas County jail Thursday on a capital murder charge. His bond was set at $1 million, jail records show.
Richter is accused of slaying Sara Hudson, who was heading to a party to celebrate her 22nd birthday at the time of the attack, the Dallas Morning News reported.
According to the arrest warrant, surveillance video showed Hudson getting out of her SUV before Richter approached her, then forced her back into the vehicle. Police were able to gather fingerprints from two of the vehicle’s doors, which led them to Richter.
Police sources said Hudson was carjacked at gunpoint and forced to an ATM by Richter. Hudson’s body was partially clothed when she was found, leading police to say Richter sexually assaulted her.
